It was my pleasure, giulia! I wish I had done a better translating job, but fortunately others were there to fill the gaps.
I hate his Canadian team for forcing him to mature so rapidly. Orser himself said that has to come naturally, but I think they're rushing him. They want him to become "one of the men", without thinking about what it is that makes him so special -- his youth and his passion. I think that by choosing a different gala program for NHK and Nationals (both of which were held in Japan) and a different encore in Nationals (he performed Romeo and Juliet, instead of his SP), he was sending a message, perhaps unintentionally. I think he knows that they're trying to change him into something he's not.

Wonderful job on translating this long video, thank you sampaguita!!
Interesting point. Although I think it's nice of him to pick a popular Japanese song for competitions in Japan (he did perform Hello I Love You too at the ice shows following Nats) and some variety for encore is good.
